It’s Sunday, so you know what that means. It’s time to celebrate another #SundaySupper. This week we’re cooking with the kiddies. Now, I don’t actually have children, but I made something any child couldn’t resist. Heck, it’s something I could never resist, either. I made ice cream, y’all. Cookies & Cream ice cream! What child could resist the lure of a big ol’ bowl of ice cream filled with chunks of America’s favorite cookie, the Oreo? No child that I know.

I’m a huge fan of ice cream. It may even be one of my favorite sweet treats. There’s something about the sweet, creamy, custardy cool treat that induces excitement every time I scoop it out of the carton. When I was a child, Cookies & Cream ice cream was my absolute favorite flavor and, to this day, it still is. My Mom-mom always had a carton of Cookies & Cream stashed in her freezer when she knew I was coming to visit. I would come in, give my grandparents a hug, and run straight to the freezer to see what flavor ice cream was on the door. It was always cookies & cream ice cream. Don’t tell my mom, but she would let me eat it for breakfast when I was little. I have to say, that is one of my most fondest childhood memories. My Mom-mom was the coolest.

I woke up around 11pm last night and treated myself to a small scoop of this ice cream. I’m pretty sure that my ice cream snowball fight dream triggered my sudden craving. Just knowing that there’s a treat in my kitchen waiting to be eaten causes lack of sleep.

Ice cream is one of the easiest treats to make. You make a custard, you let the custard chill in the fridge until completely cool, then you churn it. Simple and absolutely rewarding.

This ice cream was the creamiest ice cream I have ever eaten. I think it has something to do with the six egg yolks. Hey, I never claimed it to be healthy.

Enjoy cooking with the kiddies and, most of all, enjoy eating with your family around the table.

Cookies & Cream Ice Cream #SundaySupper
Recipe Type: Ice Cream
Author: Jennie
Prep time:
Total time:
Serves: 4 Cups
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream, divided
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla paste
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups oreo cookie crumbs, about 8 cookies
  1. In a large bowl, add 1 cup of heavy cream and place a mesh strainer on top.
  2. In a medium bowl, add the egg yolks and whisk to combine.
  3. Heat the milk, sugar, and the remaining cup of heavy cream in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat just until the mixture is hot to the touch (do not boil).
  4. Slowly pour the heated milk mixture into the egg yolks, whisking constantly. Add the egg mixture back to the saucepan and cook over medium heat, whisking constantly until the mixture thickens, about 3 minutes. Pour the mixture through the strainer and stir into the cream. Add the vanilla extract and stir to combine.
  5. Place the mixture in an airtight container and chill completely before churning, at least 8 hours.
  6. Place Oreo cookies in a ziploc bag and crush into a coarse crumb with a rolling pin.
  7. When the mixture is completely chilled, place it in your ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions. When the ice cream is finished churning, stir in your cookie pieces with a rubber spatula. Place ice cream in an airtight container and freeze. Enjoy!
